I obtained my PhD from the Department of Social Justice Education at OISE/University of Toronto, and previously practiced as a speech-language pathologist, with a MSc (Applied) from McGill University.
My research is focused on how socio-cultural conceptions of deafness, deaf people and language relate to the medical, auditory habilitation. Particularly, how language learning options presented to parents by professionals and the subsequent decisions made by parents for their deaf children. My research brings awareness to the lived consequences societal norms and assumptions about speech, language, and hearing can have for people serviced by speech-lanaguage pathologists and audiologists.
